Bramble Bank cricket match

Mentioned in an earlier forum post-Here is a link to images taken out on Bramble Bank today at low water. For those who dont know this is in the middle of the Solent and at low springs a match takes place each year between sailing clubs.

Also added is a chart section showing where the bank is between south coast and the Isle of Wight just off the shipping lanes

I know it's all shifting sand, but doesn't look as "high and dry" as previous years, especially for a 0.3 tide, or is just the photo not showing it all? And who won?
